to the united states of america throughout its history. haiti sent troops to fight with the american patriots who were fighting for their innocence against great britain and -- independence against great britain. in savannah, the battle of savannah, many haitians lost their lives which was one of the turning points of the columnists turning the tide against the british army. many valiant haitians died for our independence and actually during history when haitian military had a 12-year war with napoleon's army, haiti defeated the great napoleon's military and therefore france was in need of finances and france at that time controlled the louisiana territory. it was because of haiti's defeat of france and their need for cash that the united states was able to buy the louisiana territory, the same as the louisiana purchase, which therefore opened the west to the united states and louis and clark then went throughout the continent. so if you look at it, haiti has had a tremendous amount to do with our development as a nation and so we now owe a responsibility and i believe to our long-standing fr
in the people of america not just the government of america. >> sean: i agree. i think this arrogance and i think misinterpretation of the last elections' results. if you got to bribe senators to support your health care plan and buy off unions to support your health care plan and you are not going to keep your promise to be transparent and put it on c-span it seems this is a reaction to that arrogance do you agree with that analysis? >> i do. i think a lot of people will look at the campaign issue by issue to understand why scott brown has been so successful. it is really the attitude of are call them the neomonarchists in washington who believe big government is better, smarter, wiser than the people is happening in massachusetts the citizens here are saying no, we want a government that responds to the people of america and does not spoken to the ideologues and left wing of the democratic party. >> sean: what does it say about the president? you believe this is a referendum on barack obama's agenda. now, if this comes out, we have 63%, this just coming in, it is still 53-46. we don't ha

works in haiti, but if we do nothing, in 10 years one of every $5 in the united states of america will be spent on health care. and in 30 years one of every $3 will be spent on health care in the united states of america. that is unsustainable. that is an unsustainable road for us to go down and people will then look 10 years from now and 20 years from now and 30 years from now and they'll ask, who was representing western pennsylvania when they had a chance to tackle health care reform? who was representing connecticut? who was representing northeast ohio? when the bell rang to step up and make these changes. i yield to my friend from western p.a. >> i thank the gentleman and i thank him for his kind words as well. he hit the nail right on the head, madam speaker. that we, i think it's appropriate today to take a look at what was happening one year ago today. a year ago today the budget deficit was forecast by the congressional budget office for the fiscal year ending september 30, 2009, to be $1.8 trillion. the jobs that were lost in the month of january were more than 700,000 j

teacher america folks participate in teacher u. i'd like to just talk a little bit about how we approach this work. we have a textbook that we've developed that we use with our core members called teaching as leadership. we're releasing a version actually this month or early this month that we're hoping to sort of share that knowledge that we've accumulated by looking at our exceptional teachers more broadly and really just enter into a conversation with people in this sector about what we can do to better prepare and support teachers in general. and one of the things that we focus on that we found in our high performers is their ability to invest students in their work. and, you know, chubb says in his paper students begin lessons unmotivated, they will simply not make the hard effort necessary to learn. agreed. i mean, i couldn't agree more. but i'm not sure that technology will motivate students. i mean, and i'm not sure how you get students to engage in the technology if they have this past of not being successful and don't feel like they want to engage in the work and doubt their ow
, they want an end to abortion in america. i'm not going to say whether they're right or wrong but i'll point out, when the republicans were in charge, the senate, the house, the white house, the supreme court, once again, they did nothing to help pat robertson's followers accomplish what they wanted. tonight i ask those people, the christian right what about your own pact with the devil? how has that worked out with you -- out for you? i yield back the rest of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields his time. the gentleman from nebraska. mr. fortenberry. the gentleman from california, mr. dreier. the gentleman from louisiana, mr. cao. five minutes. mr. cao: yes. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. cao: thank you very much. mr. speaker, the new orleans saints are going to the super bowl for the first time in franchise history. as their representative to congress, i want to congratulate them in an official manner by acknowledging words of encouragement from constituents on the house floor. sunday's historic win was an inspiration to the rest of new orleans who contin
immediately. jobs here in america. we think that's very important. it also tries to help states so they're not laying off teachers and policemen and firemen. we think that's very important as well. let me say something. i did a little -- i get a little confused, and perhaps these facts are not well-known to you, but i thought i'd remind you of these facts. we pursued an economic program that your party put forward from 2001, 2003 on for eight years. now, while the people gave us the majority in the house and senate in 2006, obviously president bush threatened to or did in fact veto any changes that we made in economic policy . that economic policy, which you were a very strong supporter of and your party was a very strong supporter of, you continue to mention jobs. so i want to make sure you know these statistics. in the last three months of the brucks under the economic poll -- bush administration under the economic policies that not only did you pursue then but you still want to pursue because in fact the proposals that you have made essentially mirror the proposals that were made in
, massachusetts, dee dee on the independent line. caller: good morning, american. -- america. i'm an independent who voted for scott brown and i responded to his message pretty much of stop the madness. what i'm seeing now is really frightening me because as soon as he won, you saw the big machines starting to move into place -- the media machines, political machines. you see late night talk-show host trashing him and making fun of him, and those clips being replayed over and over. give the man a chance. i think the people of massachusetts responded to this message and as soon as his message, stop the madness, got him elected now you see people putting spin. the republican leadership trying to exploit his win, the democratic leadership reviling his win and trying to explain it away. you see all the pundits -- it letterman, olbermann, and the republican side, glenn beck, making fun of them. give him a chance, i am pleading with people. thank you so much. go, scott brown. host: "the new york times" reported that john boehner has hired a former top adviser to the house republicans in 1994, barry ja

and the democratic party. and i think it is a really good thing that america is waking up, that they are seeing through this because of the tyrannical dictatorships, the way that nancy pelosi and harry reid are trying to push through this against the will of the american people. but if mr. brown loses the election, jamming down health care down the throats of the american people is nothing compared to what they are going to do. they will find some crisis, some way that they will continue to keep the power and before we know it we will have a hammer and sickle for a flag over the white house. host: on the republican line, joining us from san francisco. caller: good morning. it is a wonderful morning when we can have massachusetts, a historical state, help us, the american people to fight back what we see here. we have been so betrayed, we feel. the nation is in a mess. we all know what happened when we went into this financial crisis. we know that president clinton put out a lot -- that he change what existed in the banking system. and there he put in larry summers to deregulate everything. that
right in america. america is medicined in the wrong direction. growing government increase intacts more intrusiveness in government has made people angry they want to see change. they want to see the washington politicians voting for this intrusive government thrown out of office. i think it is good. i think washington politicians need to understand there's a lot of focus and energy around what is happening and people aren't going to take it a lot longer. >> greta: do you worry it is more a problem for the democratic party much like in '92 with ross perot and george bush 41 it might hurt the republican party because it shaves off votes in that direction or people won't go to the polls because they want tea party candidates, not the republican party or there will be a third party candidate? >> if there were a third party and a real intent to create a strong third party that would obviously be very damaging to whatever party it drew the most votes from. if it were a tea party, party that would be from conservative republicans. i don't that i is going to happen. i think people recognize we
they spent years waiting for the french to invade again. second, there were i'm in america that didn't want to recognize them, because they felt threatened, they felt slavery threatened in america. then the abuses they from outside began to be repeated inside by the haitian leaders themselves. over time, between inside and outside abuse and neglect, the country just never recovered its footing. but i will say this, they've been making steps toward democracy for nearly 20 years now. democracy has been interrupted twice and restored, once when i was president again with the restoration of president val about to finish his term. we -- president preval about to finish his term. we are going to have a transfer of power when his period of service is up. the important thing for the american people to know is that, i've been going down there since december of 1975, when hillary and i took a delayed wedding trip there. in my lifetime this is the best chance the haitians have had to build a modern, successful state. we had an investment conference there, 600 people came from latin america, car beane,
